The biggest barrier to market adoption of biofuels is the high cost of cultivating, harvesting, transporting and processing of feedstock.

Featured in Biofuels Digest and Ethanol Producer, Proterro could, through its novel, patent-pending biosynthetic process, resolve the feedstock challenge for biofuels by delivering non-crop-based, noncellulosic, fermentation-ready sugar at less than $0.05/lb. €“ a cost lower than sugarcane, corn, other energy crops, or cellulosic sugar approaches.

Proterro's sucrose is a sustainable, inexpensive, geoflexible, fermentation-ready feedstock. It can be used to produce a variety of commercial scale fuels through standard industrial fermentation methods.
